Brandi and Chris were married at the beautiful Diamond V Farm surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains on November 4th, 2018. Brandi was visiting Charlottesville with her friends when they stumbled upon our boutique on the Downtown Mall. They popped in to have a look around, but little did she know she would be finding her dream dress that day. As soon as she put it on she was all smiles. She later brought back her mother to verify it was the one, and fell in love all over again.
Fast forward to just shy of a year later and she’s married to the love of her life. When I saw the photos I was amazed by what photographer, Amber Chesnut Photography, captured. I could see the pure love these two have for each other. And the way they look at each other will have you grinning from ear to ear. They have the kind of love that lasts a lifetime!
Congratulations to McKenzie and Javier who were married this October at Rustic Pearl Barn in Stilwell, OK. The wedding donned all of our Fall favorites – plaid, pumpkins, rich hues, you name it! McKenzie looked stunning in her Justin Alexander gown and incredible flower crown. Wishing them both a lifetime of love and happiness!
Lindsey and Josh tied the knot on May 27, 2017 at Morais Vineyards.
Lindsey came to us over a year ago, wanting to give herself plenty of time to find the perfect wedding gown. She didn’t know she’s fall in love with the perfect gown so soon after arriving to our boutique–it was practically love at first sight!
Her Augusta Jones Bridal ballgown was perfect. Doesn’t she look stunning?
Having started the wedding planning so early, she and Josh really could not wait for their big day to finally arrive–you just can’t miss the sheer joy on their faces that day.
We are so pleased to be able to call Lindsey a Sealed With A Kiss bride–she was just the sweetest to work with, and as beautiful inside as she is on the outside.
Kelley and Colin were married on May 13, 2017, at The Thursday Club in San Diego, California.
Kelley first visited us last fall, not quite sure what style she wanted for her wedding day. We made sure she tried on a little bit of everything, and while we had narrowed down the type of styles she was liking, we hadn’t quite found the “one.” Then her mom pulled something totally different off the rack–Kelley didn’t think it looked that great on the hanger, but was willing to try it.
Turns out, it was everything she didn’t know she was looking for–and the sample fit perfectly! She walked out of store with her dream dress.
We’re so happy that Kelley’s special day has come, and it looks like it was just perfect.
Congratulations again Kelley and Colin!

Our Sealed With A Kiss bride Lori and the love of her life Brian tied the knot!
These two love birds wanted to celebrate their new life together in a small, special ceremony surrounded by only their closest family members and friends. It took place at The Inn at Willow Grove, and was captured by Heather Chipps Photography.
Lori and Brian are one of the most deeply in love couples we have ever seen. Each picture captured a smile, and an expression of bliss. They obviously couldn’t wait to start their new lives together.
When Lori first came to us she was concerned about finding the right gown in such a short period of time–it was only a couple of months until her big day. Choosing a dress turned out to be easy–she tried on a light gold a-line style from Lillian West, and we all knew it was the perfect look for her big day. The gown suited her perfectly.
We are so happy that Lori and Brian found each other, and wish them many happy years to come.
Every once in awhile we stylists get asked if we have a favorite gown–while it’s hard to choose just one, this silk ball gown from Justin Alexander is definitely one of our favorites, because it’s so easily customizable!
It’s a flattering silhouette on all body types, and we’ve had brides add different types of straps, sleeves, jackets and belts to it, creating gorgeous custom looks. Here are a few examples!

In the photos above, our bride Elizabeth paired her gown with scalloped lace cap sleeves. They added a soft touch to her gown, and the look worked perfectly with her fall wedding!

When she first arrived to shop for a wedding gown, our bride Sara was torn between the simple silk ball gown and another gown that had an illusion front and off the shoulder sleeves–we were able to combine both looks by creating a custom lace jacket with the neckline she wanted, easily paired with the silk ballgown. She also added a custom beaded sash to add a touch of sparkle to her look. It turned out great, and she had the option of taking the jacket off after the ceremony so that she could bust a move out on the dance floor.
Cameron wanted something elegant but wasn’t comfortable going strapless on her big day, so we added straps to her dress! We used matching fabric to create ruched, silk, slightly off the shoulder straps to create a look she loved.
Our bride Amanda fell in love with the simple silk ballgown, but after thinking it over decided she wanted to find a way to add the lace illusion neckline style she loved to the gown–we obliged! She worked one on one with our in-house designer to choose the lace and shape of the illusion top she wanted added to the dress.
Don’t you agree that every time a bride has customized this gown it’s been gorgeous? And easy! Our designer and team of seamstresses would love to help you customize your gown too! Just visit http://sealedwithakissbridal.com/appointment to request an appointment!
Congratulations to our Sealed With A Kiss bride Shasta and her new husband Andrew! They were married May 20, 2017, but their love story has been years in the making– 11 years to be exact!
According to Shasta’s mom, Debbie, Andrew told her way back then that one day he would marry Shasta–she thought nothing of it. Little did she know that the two of them were truly meant to be.
They were married at the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia, in a lovely ceremony in font of their friends and loved ones.
Shasta came to us early on in the wedding planning process, not knowing how long it might take her to find the perfect wedding gown. She ended up saying yes to the dress that very day–a gorgeous beaded ball gown from Casablanca Bridal.
We are so blessed to be able to call Shasta a Sealed With A Kiss bride. Congratulations and best wishes to you and Andrew!

Congratulations to our Sealed With A Kiss bride Sheena and her new husband Patrick! These two lovebirds tied the knot in down in Florida about a month ago.
Sheena chose a gorgeous design from Augusta Jones Bridal for her wedding day. It was not a design we usually have in store–she happened to schedule her appointment during a trunk show weekend, and she just fell in love with the dress the moment she put it on.
